The Comoros islands have no history of drilling and production and no oil and gas exploration wells have ever been drilled on the islands or in the surrounding waters.
However, in 2014 a 2D infill seismic survey was run over blocks 35, 36 and 37, neighbouring Mozambique, following the earlier acquisition of a multi-client East African 2D seismic survey. Interpretation of the data suggests that the reservoir play fairway, which is productive in Mozambique Areas 1 and 4, extends into the Comoros.
There are plans for an ultra deep exploration well to be drilled in future years in this Rovuma Basin play in the Mozambique Channel. Depending on results, more activity may occur but Globalshift believes that the islands will probably not achieve production, at least in the short and medium term, until the market for gas improves and a pipeline to new LNG plants in Mozambique or Tanzania can be justified commercially.
